O! Thy random posts!

1. Things that amuse me, part one: The Vatican ought to have a pastry shop called "Donut Nobis Pacem," don't you think? (See Dona Nobis Pacem to get stupid joke.)

2. Things that amuse me, part two: Jim Carrey on how his union with Jenny McCarthy has been dubbed "Jimeny": "To be part of that tradition is amazing, to be TomKat and Brangelina, and going back to Markapatra and Napolephine. So, it’s not such a bad thing, really!" Hee hee.

3. Doctor-definitely-not-Dr-or-Il-Dottore-or-Doc Who: Have watched the first Eccleston/Piper disc so far, all of three episodes. I like it! I don't love it yet, but of course I need to time to get invested. Still, Simon Callow as Dickens was a treat; and as to "The End of the World" all I can say is: They had me at "Tainted Love." That's the kind of irreverent silliness I can approve of. (And it's probably the exact point at which several of you decided the new series sucked, which is your right, but I do love me some off-the-wall dorkiness.) Anyway, neither of the leads bother me, but Eccleston does look a lot like a former boss I had, which is disturbing, so I won't mind Tennant taking over.

4. I have this sort of ambitious Halloween idea of getting you guys to send me little sound files of you reading a pre-assigned line of some traditional ghostly tale like "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", which I would then splice together into a cool LJ-people Halloween voice montage. If interested and able to record your voice into a tidy mp3, go ahead and comment and we'll see if the idea flies. [Edit: Voice posts work. I think this can fly!]

There is something about Eccleston that I can't wrap my ever-lovin' Doctor Who mind around. Billie Piper has grown on me though. I'm catching up on season two and I actually find the triangle between Ten-Rose-Mickey Smith amusing... Mickey tells Ten "You can only run after one of us. It will be Rose. It will always be Rose" or something like that. Unlike many fans, I'm not a "shipper" when it comes to Rose and the Doctor--there is a character later on that I think is much more suitable and much more interesting.

Torchwood has really grown on me as well.

Yeah, so far I'm not seeing that Rose would make a good romantic mate for the Doctor, but maybe that's precisely because I've read so many posts from various people saying it won't happen. :) She's likeable enough, though; or at least not annoying, which is sufficient for watching purposes.
